“I experienced first-hand the tragedies, psychological and emotional effects of war through my own family members. One cousin was deeply affected by ‘Gulf War Syndrome’ going from 235 pounds to 85 pounds. When asked what happened to him or what was being done to help him he replied, ‘They don’t know, and they don’t want to know.’ He was a Gulf veteran who died shortly thereafter,” Polamalu told FOX411’s Pop Tarts in an exclusive interview.
